Norwich wins 4-3 at Swansea in Premier League
Norwich extended its unbeaten run to nine Premier League matches
on Saturday by winning 4-3 at Swansea to inflict the hosts’ first
loss in six weeks.
Norwich led 3-0 by halftime at Liberty Stadium after goals by
Steven Whittaker in the 16th minute, Sebastien Bassong in the 40th
and Grant Holt in the 44th.
Swansea pulled back to 3-2 with strikes to Michu in the 51st and
Jonathan De Guzman in the 59th. But Norwich midfielder Robert
Snodgrass’ free kick gave his team a cushion, until Michu scored
his league-leading 12th goal of the season in added time.
Norwich provisionally rose one spot to 11th. Swansea dropped a
place to eighth in the standings.
Norwich hasn’t loss in the league since a 4-1 reverse to Chelsea
on Oct. 6, while Swansea had previously been unbeaten since going
down 1-0 at Manchester City on Oct. 27.
